The Splendour Of The Mighty One

[08:21] <Minaplo> [NEON GENESIS EVANGELION. 26th of February, 2018. Episode Title: The Splendour of the Mighty One.-
[08:26] <Minaplo> [It was indeed felt before anything.-
[08:27] <Minaplo> [Across the planet, A-Types and E-Types would suddenly, for a single second, black out, their senses overloaded by what could only be described as an AT flare of immense magnitude- a flare felt around the world.-
[08:27] <Minaplo> [One second later, detection satellites and listening posts went berserk, detecting an immense AT Field, coming from the United States- in New Mexico.-
[08:29] <Minaplo> [The battleship was loaded with Evas and their pilots- Aline, William, Asuka and Shinji- and prepared to intercept the Archangel at flank speed.-
[08:31] <Minaplo> [Meanwhile, in Asgard Base, only a few minutes of delay passed before their orders were covertly received.-
[08:32] <Minaplo> ["EVA-01, 04 and 08 will go into battle to support the battleship." Said Captain Hyuga, addressing the pilots on the bridge. "EVA-03 will remain in reserve to enact extraction. Understood?"]
[08:35] <Yanmei> "Yes sir." Yanmei was dividing her attention between him and the screens behind him, her arms folded. They were really going to deploy from here…?
[08:36] <Sept> "Understood." Sera took one more look around the bridge, and at his fellow pilots with a serious nod. "Best of luck."
[08:38] <Yanmei> "Thanks. Same to you." Yanmei dropped her arms. "If that's all the info we have, then let's suit up!"
[08:39] <Minaplo> ["Right." Said Isaiah, giving Yanmei an encouraging look before heading off.]
[08:58] <Minaplo> [The terrain was wasteland, flatland with huge gauges of cliff and rock cutting through the surface. It was here that the Angel walked, crossing the plains with an elegant slowness. It was in no rush to seize the initiative. It was waiting.-
[09:00] <Minaplo> [The Paris Evangelions were launched via rail-catapult, speed making them airborne without the help of wings. Aline would be the first to see it…-
[09:04] <Minaplo> [In some ways it was akin to the Evangelion. It was tall, slender; it had long clever arms coated in a shiny silvery armour; its face was elegant and vaguely bestial, provoking comparisons to some sort of noble bird. Huge wings enveloped it, made up of interlocking armoured plates instead of feathers; a whip-like tail coiled around its legs. The air around it shimmered and crackled, its
[09:04] <Minaplo> very presence forcing the natural world to shift and change in response.-
[09:04] <Minaplo> [Red light glowed from behind the wings, strong and bright…]
[09:18] * Aline landed amidst the desert sand and rock, arms out. She stared out into the distance, at the Angel, and firmly nodded her head. "…So it begins. The battle at the appointed time."
[09:21] <Minaplo> [A moment later, four other Evas would appear out of thin air, a pinkish crackle of energy heralding their arrival.-
[09:23] <Minaplo> [Two hulking figures of green and violet, and a smaller, agile figure of black and white; finally, EVA-03 would appear, then promptly vanish back into the void. The board was set.]
[09:23] * Sept tightened his grip on the shield, banging the bottom of it against the rocks tentatively. "Do you know anything else about it, Aline?"
[09:32] * Aline looked at Sera's view panel carefully. "Hold on." …But she did get 00 moving to join with the rest of her formation.
[09:33] <Minaplo> ["Good to see you again, de Pteres." Said Marianne. "Our- emissary- is informing us that we can expect incredible AT power at present. Furthermore, you've… All been given one minute to surrender."]
[09:37] <Sept> "Funny. Do what you can to prepare. What exactly would happen with this 'surrender'? We can't speak for humanity."
[09:37] <Minaplo> ["You would…" A pause.-
[09:38] <Minaplo> ["'Be reconstituted into the sublime ichor to be granted the right to assist the Children rebuild the world once it is reclaimed'."]
[09:40] <Yanmei> "Lovely." Yanmei sighed. "It would be something like that. Any orders, Colonel?"
[09:41] <Minaplo> ["Rendezvous at the following coordinates-" locations appeared on their plug computers- "then engage the target. Ikari, de Pteres and Gabriel-Wei take point, Zhang and Langley to take the flank, Blanc and Weiss to provide support."]
[09:44] * ZackSleep is now known as Zack
[09:45] <Minaplo> [The Archangel continued to walk, not turning to look at them, not even seeming to notice them…]
[09:46] * Sept followed along, on guard, though the thing seemed to be honoring its offer so far.
[09:51] <Yanmei> "Right." Yanmei was moving now as well, scowling. Still at a distance, she reached out, manipulating 04's weak AT-Field so that it interfered with the Angel's.
[09:54] * Aline didn't really do much either, instead just enfolding her AT Field around the maser rifle 00 was toting. "Hmmm."
[09:54] <Minaplo> [And the Archangel Michael promptly stopped- and in a single bound, leapt some 200 metres to the north, instantly breaking Yanmei's interference.]
[09:58] <Yanmei> "…!" Yanmei made a noise beneath her breath, and switched tactics, suddenly speeding up to close the gap.
[09:59] <Minaplo> [Asuka tried the same thing, and instantly Michael moved again, a huge bounding leap that cleared nearly half a kilometre in the space of a second. "Damnit, stay still!"-
[10:00] <Minaplo> [Now it was William's turn, moving up to neutralise…]
[10:01] * Aline actually stayed still, leaning on some of the machinery of her plug with a put-upon look. "He's giving us that minute, but I think we're annoying him with the neuts. Not that it matters, since soon it'll be /on/."
[10:05] <Sept> "We have to at least get some kind of feel on how strong its field is before that."
[10:06] <Minaplo> ["Alright. Everyone, double-time!" Came Marianne's voice. "Exact coordinates, move out!"]
[10:09] <Yanmei> "Yes ma'am!" Yanmei did so all too gladly, dashing after it with a burst of speed.
[10:12] * Aline lifted off of the machinery now, and as 00 sprinted into position, Aline took a deep breath, focusing.
[10:13] * Sept ran toward the front line as well, ready to engage as soon as everyone else was ready.
[10:14] <Minaplo> ["Opening fire!"-
[10:15] <Minaplo> [A stream of hyper-heated molecules burst from EVA-21's left arm, a fusion multigun bringing forth its incredible energy. Michael nimbly dodged, but Isaiah was quick to the attack, digging super-sharp claws deep into Michael's right leg and pulling apart armour and flesh.-
[10:15] <Minaplo> [The red light hidden by Michael's wings began to grow in intensity, now…!]
[10:18] * Aline stared, wordlessly. She didn't do so for long, because soon she was going back to aiming and reading target telemetry.
[10:23] * Sept , meanwhile, found a suitable opening and tackled the Angel. "…'ll keep it still…" he murmured.
[10:48] <Minaplo> ["…"-
[10:48] <Minaplo> [On the bridge of the battleship, Ezekiel turned towards Marianne. "The Armistice is Broken."-
[10:48] <Minaplo> [Michael didn't resist EVA-01's tackle. He didn't have to.-
[10:49] <Minaplo> [The wings burst open, now, and the Archangel held forth a burning red orb, distortion radiating from its viscous surface like heat. The orb pulsed, and a second later the phase spaces in the area were overloaded, shockwaves bursting outwards.-
[10:50] <Minaplo> [Asuka toppled backward, a sudden scream issuing from her lips- Sera would find his grip completely broken, momentarily unable to move.-
[10:51] <Minaplo> [Michael was not so cursed. He leapt backward, landing gracefully hundreds of metres away- and then the barrage began.-
[10:51] <Minaplo> ["Incoming!" Shouted Marianne- the area was bathed with fiery AT energy- energy that strangely warped around Asuka and Yanmei.-
[10:52] <Minaplo> [The others were not so lucky, with the Evas trying to scramble for cover- and those that couldn't soon found their ablative armour melting dangerously quickly.-
[10:52] <Minaplo> [Amidst this holocaust came another explosion, a tight, focused beam that ripped through EVA-21's cheek, sending William screaming, and near cut through EVA-01's leg before Sera blocked it.-
[10:53] <Minaplo> [But the pattern quickly repeated, another wave of incredible energy- and another beam, this time savaging EVA-00, burning a hole through the chest- and then burning EVA-21's leg near-off, before striking EVA-05 with enough force still to fuse its armour plates deeply into its now-gaping flesh on the arm.]
[11:05] * Aline came down from a yelp of pain, and groused slightly. "Fucking…."
[11:07] * Sept was tossed back and forth, EVA-01's armor bruised and battered, but still ready to take more punishment. Sera picked himself up off the ground, gritting his teeth as he took off towards the Archangel again. At least his blood was flowing now.
[11:08] <Yanmei> 04 lay on the ground, still spasming slightly. Within it, Yanmei was gasping, hands over her eyes.
[11:10] <Minaplo> ["Get it together, Yanmei!" Said Marianne. "Get back in there and lead your team!"]
[11:13] <Yanmei> "Guurgh…" She writhed, but after a moment the simulants and painkillers from her plugsuit coursed through her body. "Ugh… A-all right." She worked her way to her hands and knees and then to her feet. "Move! Spread out and neutralize! We c-can't take those type of hits again!"
[11:14] * Raphael has quit IRC (Quit: )
[11:14] * Aline moved with the formation, readying herself… then. "R-right!" Then she fired a shot, using all of the focus she had gathered earlier!
[11:28] <Minaplo> [… And it quickly dashed out of the way, easily evading the crude containment Asuka and Isaiah tried to set up.-
[11:29] <Minaplo> [It landed gracefully a kilometre away- and the bombardment began again, a fleshy sphere of biomass exploding with sheer, violent force into EVA-21's body, the wave nearly claiming Sera and Isaiah- and burning away large parts of Shinji's armour as well.-
[11:29] <Minaplo> [Another focused beam struck EVA-21's head, right between the eyes- there was an audible -pop- and -sizzle- as the Evangelion's eyes visibly melted and began to ooze down its burned, buckling armoured face.-
[11:30] <Minaplo> ["MY EYES-AAAHHH! AAAHHH!" William screamed, sharp, short shrieks ofa gony.]
[11:36] <Sept> "God-damnit- – still gonna try to stop it..!"
[11:42] * Yanmei grimaced at the blood-curdling screams, and Eva-21's visible damage. She cursed. "Colonel! He's a sitting duck out here!"
[11:43] <Minaplo> ["You're right. William! Return to extraction coordinates!"]
[12:17] <Minaplo> ["All units, move in to neutralise! Aline, we're going to need you to bear heavy firepower down onto it!"]
[12:20] <Sept> "On my way!"
[12:22] <Aline> "Yes ma'am!" Aline responded, and after waiting for everyone to set up, she… well. She was moving supernally fast even for an EVA, blurring slightly as 00 aimed, then pumped off a shot… Which actually refracted in scintillating directions to hit in spite of some expert dodging!
[12:23] <Minaplo> [The blast hit through the small gap in Michael's armour Isaiah had created- the blow was clearly vicious, and would've vaporised the leg if it had hit an Eva. But instead the Stone scintillated, and the energy… Almost seemed to rewind in time, reducing the damage.]
[12:26] <Sept> "Gh. Keep trying, we'll get through!"
[12:30] * Yanmei raced for the Angel with a scream, and pounded away with it, using both the Herald and the oversized hammer that 04 was carrying in its other hand.
[12:31] <Minaplo> [The blows hit home, hard and satisfying, dealing obvious damage- and Asuka was up now, firing a well-placed shot with her bolter, the Archangel staggering beneath the blows…-
[12:33] <Minaplo> ["… Eh?! My AT Field's weakenin-"-
[12:34] <Minaplo> [The rest of Asuka's sentence was cut off as the Angel blew past at top speed. Not even a second had passed before it took its vengeance, a well-placed bolt of energy ripping straight through EVA-00's forehead. The sight was disturbing; the head vaporised practically instantly, leaving the Evangelion standing, tottering… Then falling backward, smashing into the ground with a heavy -crash-.-
[12:45] <Minaplo> ["Aline! Damnit, the plug isn't ejecting-"-
[12:45] <Minaplo> ["The Warmaster wishes to inform you that he is intending to spread a new AT Field." Said Ezekiel quietly. "An Anti-AT Field beyond anything you can counter. It is in his way to warn you, so you may move to shelter accordingly."]
[12:46] * Aline cried out in rather abject pain, but while she still managed consciousness, the feed would soon wink out, leaving her only on emergency systems…
[13:31] * Yanmei stared blankly at the smoking, headless EVA-00. Her hands tightened around her controls. -
[13:32] <Yanmei> "Grrr… We almost had him!" She looked up again, sharply. "Move up! We'll give him everything we've got!"
[13:42] <Minaplo> ["On it. De Pteres! Pin him down!" Shouted Isaiah, sprinting across the field.]
[13:44] * Sept did as asked, his only response a strained, drawn-out yell. Flying the last few hundred meters, 01 skidded to a halt in front of the Archangel, light on its feet, ready to intercept it if it tried to get past.
[13:47] <Minaplo> [For a moment it seemed that the Angel was cornered…-
[13:48] <Minaplo> [And then Sera felt it, even beyond the crawling, slimy sensation of an AT Field. The sensation of physics simply… Nulling.-
[13:48] <Minaplo> [His self was disrupted, and a second's gap was all the Archangel needed. Dozens of beams of light burst from its carapace, smashing into Sera, hurling EVA-01 across the landscape…-
[13:50] <Minaplo> [And again, Michael was off, moving like greased lightning- landing in the midst of Yanmei's squad. The moment Michael landed, Yanmei would see it- their Evangelions… dissolving.]
[13:55] <Yanmei> "What the hell is this?!" It was like little droplets of invisible acid already starting to corrode through the bits between the armor. A red light flashed across the console inside her entry plug.
[13:56] <Minaplo> ["Absolute Terror." Said Ezekiel softly.]
[07:40] <Sept> EVA-01 hit the ground, rolling over a few times before managing to right itself. Even then, it took a while for it to start moving again as Sera thrashed around in the plug, fighting off the lingering effects of the anti-AT field. But with Aline down, there was little hesitation in his charge back into the fight.
[07:51] <Minaplo> ["Get in there! Ikari, Gabriel on neutralisation! Everyone else take him down!"]
[08:13] * Yanmei tried, as soon as Shinji weakened the AT Field. Her usual blows rained down hard, but most of them bounced off the remaining AT Field.
[08:20] <Minaplo> [One blow did leave a huge gouge out of muscle and flesh, enough to give Asuka her opening. Asuka swung her axe down hard, nearly slicing the leg off…-
[08:20] <Minaplo> [… Michael vanished.-
[08:21] <Minaplo> [In a whirl of speed, he'd leapt away from the attackers, his wounds healing right before their eyes. So much hard work…-
[08:21] <Minaplo> [Then the firestorm came. A bolt of negative energy burned towards Yanmei…-
[08:22] <Minaplo> [She dodged, and the attack was immediately followed by a burning beam of light. This too she dodged, but she couldn't anticipate the beam bending in on itself- and ripping right through the back of EVA-04's head.]
[08:26] * Yanmei cried out, jolting forward, but the blow wasn't as bad as the red light attack from the beginning of the battle. In fact, after the initial shock, the pain wasn't too bad… -
[08:28] <Yanmei> Sluggishly, she tried to move, to retaliate, but it suddenly felt as if 04's feet were stuck in tar. "…!"
[08:29] <Minaplo> [("Zhang's Synch Ratio has dropped to 22%! At this rate…!")]
[08:33] <Sept> "Get it together! We're not done yet!" Sera closed the gap to Michael, discarding his heavy shield on the way and drawing the sword off his back, bringing it down hard toward the Angel's midsection.
[08:34] <Minaplo> [The Archangel dodged, a little off-kilter; the attack came down on its leg, causing it to stumble.-
[08:49] <Minaplo> [Its counterattack came immediately- bolts of energy, negative force and plasma rained down on Sera, blinding him for a split second…]
[08:49] * Raphael has joined #nervfrance
[08:53] * Sept raised his arms to protect his face, shielding himself from the barrage well enough. But the combination of the energy and the physical damage had done its work on the outer arm. "Move, you idiot..!"
[09:11] <Yanmei> "Colonel. Temporarily disengaging," Yanmei warned. 04 was already easing off at its slow, loping pace, stumbling once or twice. "S-something's wrong with my vision. It's all fuzzy…"
[09:18] <Minaplo> ["(Damage reported to EVA-04's optics-)"-
[09:18] <Minaplo> [Michael leapt into the air, the wings propelling him away, close to Yanmei- her disengagement had done nothing.-
[09:19] <Minaplo> [Sera wouldn't have time to react as the hammer-blow of Michael's fury fell upon him. A burst of negative energy ripped through EVA-01's leg- and then another pure beam of light vaporised it, the pain burning through Sera's body- magma, his plug was full of magma-
[09:20] <Minaplo> [And then came the cross blast, devastating the landscape, Asuka barely avoiding it- Sera and Isaiah not at all. Isaiah screamed, the armoured chest of EVA-08 cracking and falling open, exposed organs letting off clouds of superheated gases.-
[09:20] <Minaplo> ["Aaah-aaah…" Isaiah nevertheless kept in the fight, his Eva leaping forward, trying to negate Michael's mighty field…]
[09:38] <Minaplo> ["Sera, cover Asuka! It's going to focus on her!" Shouted Shinji.]
[09:51] <Sept> "Of course!" he barked back, sticking close to Asuka. Though without reliable ablatives, there was little he could do beyond hoping to draw fire away from her.
[09:52] * Raphael has quit IRC (Ping timeout)
[09:56] <Minaplo> [Michael's mighty wings beat once more, hurling the Angel almost whimsically- yet ferociously fast- out of Isaiah's neutralisation reach. A second later, the salvos came-
[09:58] <Minaplo> [EVA-08's body ignited, the chest and torso finally giving way and near vaporising, taking the Eva out of commission. Isaiah's screams were cut short as the feed broke…-
[09:58] <Minaplo> [The white entry plug ejected unharmed, however, landing some hundred metres away- still too close to the battle, but safer than being in the Eva. His other companions were not so lucky.-
[09:59] <Minaplo> [The energy struck EVA-01 and 02 both ferociously but 01 bore the brunt- when the smoke cleared, another limb had been lost to the holocaust.]
[10:15] * Yanmei hoisted herself slightly out of her seat, dismay written clearly across her face.
[10:16] <Minaplo> ["Focus, Yanmei." Said Marianne, her voice steely. "Ikari-"-
[10:16] <Minaplo> ["Nnnggh-"-
[10:16] <Minaplo> [For at that moment, EVA-05's arm, already dissolving, finally came loose, Shinji letting out a cry of pain.-
[10:16] <Minaplo> ["… Ikari, fall back and neutralise. Zhang, Langley, de Pteres, attack!"]
[10:24] <Yanmei> "Ma'am!" Yanmei was racing forward as quickly as her condition would allow - which was not much. Still, she got within striking distance, whipping out a small dagger-like weapon and sliding Herald safely away inside a wing dock.
[10:26] <Sept> "GO!" Sera yelled, swooping in to cover the others.
[10:26] <Minaplo> ["Hyaaaah!" Asuka swung- Michael glancing in her direction, her axe being halted in mid-air. His attention was away from Yanmei, now…]
[10:28] <Yanmei> The opening was all she needed. She pounced, the dagger-like thing extending into a wickedly sharp, silver javelin as she drove it into Michael's leg.
[10:29] <Minaplo> [The pilum began to vibrate at supersonic speeds, ripping apart flesh and armor with horrific ease. It vibrated itself apart, breaking into dozens of shards…-
[10:29] <Minaplo> [… And although the wound was made, it wasn't enough to stop Michael. Silently, he stared at Yanmei- and then leapt away from them, landing far beyond their reach.-
[10:32] <Minaplo> [Thankfully for Yanmei, her demise was prevented by the hulking green figure in front of her- the blitz came, and was weathered by EVA-01 on her behalf, leaving her unscathed.]
[10:41] <Yanmei> "De Pteres! …damn. Are you all right?"
[10:55] <Sept> "…shit. So far."
[10:57] <Minaplo> ["De Pteres, I'm feeding you combat data. See if you can take it on with your sword!"]
[11:03] <Sept> As the Angel took off, Sera was right after it, striking moments after its feet touched the ground again – but the attacks couldn't reach it. "Got its field back up already…"
[11:11] <Minaplo> [Sera would once again be the focus of its fury. With one hand held out to Sera, energy struck EVA-01's body, burning its remaining arm, leaving it a torso on a single leg.-
[11:12] <Minaplo> [The other hand, holding the Stone, gestured out at Yanmei- and the writing was on the wall. A single, high-powered shot ripped right through EVA-04's head, which erupted outwards in a shower of superheated gore. the Evangelion crashed to earth with a mighty thud, the Entry Plug… Remaining inert.]
[11:17] <Yanmei> There were shrill screams from 04's entry plug. Thankfully for the listeners, perhaps, the comms abruptly cut off as it switched over to emergency power.
[11:18] <Sept> "Yanmei!" Sera hit the controls, swearing loudly. "We can try to suppress its field if I disable my ratio limiter!"
[11:29] <Minaplo> ["Permission granted!"-
[11:29] <Minaplo> [There was a burst of multi-coloured light, and EVA-02 was hurled backwards across dozens of metres of broken rock, bolts of energy shredding the torso. It landed- bounced- and landed again, the Entry Plug clearly exposed.]
[11:35] * Sept said nothing, finding the safety release for the limiter – as soon as he took it out, though, he looked like he'd received an electric shock. In the same motion, Sera reattached the cable. "Not.. enough…" 01 retreated, limping on one leg, supported by the remnants of an AT field, to a safe distance to support the others.
[11:36] <Minaplo> ["I'm taking your sword!" Said Shinji, dashing in, grabbing Sera's blade-
[11:36] <Minaplo> [And promptly being blasted through the head by a beam of energy. EVA-01 staggered backwards, the light of its eyes flickering- then fading, its head sagging downward.-
[11:36] <Minaplo> ["…"-
[11:37] <Minaplo> ["Hold position, de Pteres."]
[11:38] <Minaplo> <EVA-05*>
[11:41] <Sept> "My-" he had little time to object. "Alright…"
[11:46] <Minaplo> [Michael walked slowly past the downed EVA-05.-
[11:46] <Minaplo> [Staring at the nearly-disabled EVA-01, at least Sera could note that it was quick.-
[11:47] <Minaplo> [A final blast of energy, and EVA-01 was slain, the Entry Plug ejecting at the last second- only a few dozen metres away, landing- then bouncing several times, knocking Sera from wall to wall to wall, before finally landing on a rock.]
[11:57] <Sept> "Gah- ahh!" Sera found himself out of breath – but he'd been in worse conditions after battles. Right now, he just stared up, afraid to move, maybe that way the anti-AT field would find him faster…
[11:58] <Minaplo> [… But Sera would see the Anti-AT field ripple around the plug, leaving it unmarked, sparing him…?-
[11:59] <Minaplo> [In fact, the Anti-AT Field was starting to focus itself on one point, now- the Philosopher's Stone.-
[11:59] <Minaplo> [Perhaps it was just Michael signifying the end of the battle. Or perhaps he knew what was coming.-
[12:00] <Minaplo> [EVA-05's form shuddered, trembling- and then the head threw itself back, tumorous growths spreading over its many wounds, healing what was lost. The jaw became unhinged, and a feral roar shook the earth.-
[12:00] <Minaplo> [The power of the Berserk Maiden- the first, and in some ways, still the mightiest of the Evangelions in combat. An unstoppable juggernaut that could not be stopped- not even by N2 warheads or positron cannons.-
[12:01] <Minaplo> [The Evangelion turned, lowered its head, and charged at Michael, its bulk moving with shocking swiftness. It raised a claw-
[12:01] <Minaplo> [and Michael held the Philosopher's Stone out, the red surface now completely black.-
[12:01] <Minaplo> [The world went silent, as though the Stone had sucked away noise; and the world became cold as well.-
[12:02] <Minaplo> [It was this power that could shatter worlds.-
[12:03] <Minaplo> [The Stone's energy erupted outwards in a tremendous wave, black and blue and electric, a destructive force hundreds of metres wide that completely engulfed EVA-05.-
[12:03] <Minaplo> [The blast was bright- bright enough that it was seen thousands of kilometres away, fighter jet pilots temporarily blinded by the light.-
[12:04] <Minaplo> [The wave pushed past EVA-05 effortlessly, and travelled on, gouging a perfect semi-circle out of the earth for another twenty kilometres- an open wound on the world's surface.-
[12:04] <Minaplo> [The wave came to a stop as abrupt as it had begun. EVA-05 was nothing more than a few chunks of meat attached to a Core…-
[12:04] <Minaplo> [And a white entry plug embedded in a spinal cord, still undamaged.-
[12:05] <Minaplo> [A silence fell on the battlefield- the silence of finality. Michael turned, wrapped himself in his wings, and began to walk.-
[12:05] <Minaplo> [Marianne stared at the viewscreen on the bridge of the battleship. She had seen something like that only once- when the Independence had attempted to destroy Almeida…-
[12:06] <Minaplo> [But that was antimatter. It hadn't the power to dissolve souls to nothingness.-
[12:06] <Minaplo> [The stunned silence on the bridge was broken only by Ezekiel.-
[12:06] <Minaplo> ["The Warmaster bids you to gather your wounded." He said quietly. "He bids you to lick your wounds."-
[12:07] <Minaplo> ["At his will, the following cities are to be evacuated and abandoned- Washington D.C, New York, Richmond, Philadelphia, Detroit, Chicago, Boston."-
[12:08] <Minaplo> ["You have one week for this."-
[12:08] <Minaplo> ["Furthermore, he bids that you evacuate and abandon Paris-2 and the Black Moon to him. For this you have two weeks."-
[12:08] <Minaplo> ["That is all."]
